...\QtSDK\QtCreator\lib\qtcreatorcdbext32\qtcreatorcdbext.dll is missing
Here is what Qt Creator's Application output states when you hit F5 to debug a Qt GUI Widget project:
bq. Internal error: The extension C:\QtSDK\QtCreator\lib\qtcreatorcdbext32\qtcreatorcdbext.dll cannot be found.
Prerequisites to reproduce the problem:
32-bit Windows 7 (not tested on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP and Windows Vista, only on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit)
the latest Qt SDK - 1.1.4
the latest Qt SDK installed including the new version of the Qt Creator - "2.4":http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2011/12/13/qt-creator-2-4-0-released/
Notice the "32" in "qtcreatorcdbext32". When you open the "...\QtSDK\QtCreator\lib" folder, you see the following items:
- qtcreator [folder]
- qtcreatorcdbext64 [folder]
Note that 64-bit related folder exist ( "qtcreatorcdbext64" - ends with "64" ), but no 32-bit specific is provided. I don't know whether this CDB extension has been added along with the latest Qt Creator - 2.4, or has existed in previous versions of the IDE, but the problem is reproduced after updating the Qt Creator application to 2.4 version of the IDE using the SDKMaintenanceTool.
The problem is reproduced only using 32-bit Windows 7. Qt Creator does not exhibit this problem when ran in 64-bit Windows 7.
States that the CDB extension is used for nightly builds and the names of two developers are cited in it:
friedmann - Friedemann Kleint, Friedemann.Kleint@nokia.com
danimo - Daniel Molkentin, http://labs.qt.nokia.com/author/danimo/
These guys should know how to resolve the problem.
Please, verify the issue and submit a Qt SDK and Qt Creator fix for it.
This problem also occurs with Windows XP 32-bit.
Is that with the Qt SDK or with the Qt Creator standalone package?
bq. ... but the problem is reproduced after updating the Qt Creator application to 2.4 version of the IDE using the SDKMaintenanceTool.
= part of the Qt SDK package
Sorry, missed that part. We found the reason and will push an update later. You can find the missing file in the standalone Qt Creator package until then. You should be able to simply copy it.
